Listed Grade II and constructed of stone and brick under a part thatched roof, Rose Thatch is a very attractive semi-detached cottage in a quiet rural position that has been successfully extended in recent years. Although the cottage is in need of some updating, it has good ceiling heights on the ground floor and scope for the addition of a shower to the cloakroom adjoining the ground floor bedroom. The property has space for parking off the lane and is approached through a metal gate with a brick path leading to the front door. The front garden on either side of the path is well stocked with a wide variety of flower and shrub borders; steps to the side lead to the rear garden. The majority of the garden lies to the rear and is a real delight; it is a classic ''cottage' garden with a lawned area flanked by well stocked and colourful flower and shrub borders along its length. Steps lead from the kitchen up to a terrace from where there is a lovely outlook. At the end of the garden is a brick and tiled studio with an adjoining terrace from which there is a spectacular outlook. The studio has the benefit of light, water and power. One of the four hamlets of East Knoyle, Milton lies just to the north of the village sitting in wooded, gently rolling countryside, close to the Wiltshire/Dorset borders and to the north of the Saxon market town of Shaftesbury. The Green, another hamlet nearby, has a popular pub, The Fox and Hounds. East Knoyle has a highly acclaimed village shop/post office and a church, while Hindon has a doctor's surgery. Shaftesbury has a full range of everyday facilities, including banks, delicatessen, supermarkets, arts centre, small hospital and library and for more sophisticated requirements there is the Cathedral city of Salisbury to the east. Nearby Tisbury has a mainline railway station (London Waterloo) while the A303 lies some 2 miles to the north giving access to the South West and London, via the M3.
